CraftAg is igniting
We are driving keystone technologies: Plant genetics, advanced manufacturing, product innovation, and compliance.
At its inception, co-founders Rory Rawlings and Rachael Donham started CraftAg to sell technology and inputs to hemp farmers. The impetus for this new business was the federal legalization of high-CBD hemp and the birth of a new agricultural sector. Recognizing plant genetics as the keystone technology of this industry, CraftAg sold and distributed a quarter million seedlings of an aromatic, high-CBD strain to farmers participating in Washington's first season of hemp production.
